"How can I download Amazon Music to my computer in AIFF format? I heard that the sound quality of music in AIFF format is better than those in MP3 format, is that true?"
Amazon Music (previously Amazon MP3) is a music streaming platform and online music store operated by Amazon. Now it features over 100 million songs and thousands of free stations. Amazon Music provides multiple services to its users, including Amazon Music Free, Prime Music and Amazon Music Unlimited. Amazon Music Unlimited users can listen to Amazon Music on-demand and download Amazon Music songs for offline playback.
However, Amazon Music downloads are protected in an encrypted format, which means that you can only open those files in the Amazon Music app or other authorized devices like Mighty. If you want to play Amazon Music songs on other devices or players, you have to convert Amazon Music to other formats like the MP3 and AIFF format, mentioned in the question at the beginning. But which one is better? AIFF or MP3?
Audio Interchange File Format (AIFF) is an audio file format standard used for storing sound data. The audio data in most AIFF files is uncompressed pulse-code modulation (PCM). This type of AIFF file takes up more space on your disk than lossy formats like MP3—about 10 MB for one minute of stereo audio at a sample rate of 44.1 kHz and a bit depth of 16 bits. If you want to download Amazon Music to AIFF format, please make sure that you have enough space on your disk.
MP3 uses lossy data compression to encode data that uses inexact approximations and the partial discarding of data. The advantage is that more audio files can be saved in a limited space. When saving the same song in MP3 format, the size is smaller than that in AIFF format. But if you are looking for a better sound quality of music, the AIFF format would be a better choice.
